Westernunion Officeofbeninrepublic – Invitation: Your First Payment Sent MTCN:056-939-7621(Available for pick up by receiver) (Nigerian Scam)

Now…this one’s pretty creative.  It came into my email looking like a Yahoo calendar appointment.  Not that I use a yahoo calendar, but still, I have to give this one points for creativity.  There are NO millions waiting for you at a Western Union office in Benin.  Seriously.  Common sense, people.  I have removed all links for safety.  ~BD

Dear

We are happy to in form you officially that we received approval letter today from Federal Ministry of Finance Office, authorizing our Bank Western Union to program a total sum of $5,500,000.00 USD and pay you through our western union money transfer system for your easy pickup and warned against any unforeseen delay that could make your fund not to get to you in a timely manner.

The Federal Ministry of Finance chairman (Prince Isaiah Joe ) (Prince Isaiah Joe?  Is that like Camel Joe, because I like Camel Joe.) have submitted your payment file to the Benin Consulate for screening and all data have being confirmed correct to pay you a total sum of $5,500,000.00 USD as a result overdue contract/Inheritance Funds/Compensation Funds and your Lottery Winning funds so far. We have been advised to send you $5000 USD every day because Western Union laws here in Benin Republic can only transfer a maximum of $5.000 USD every day to you.

We have today transferred your first US$5000.00 available for your pickup at any western union office in your City, but still on hold due to the unpaid activation fee of $95 which you supposed to pay before your transfer will be posted to your country for pickup.
NOTE: THE REASON WHY WE NEED YOU TO SEND US THE $95USD IS THAT WE TRIED TO DEDUCT THE ACTIVATION FEE OUT FROM YOUR FUND BUT THE MINISTER ADMINISTRATOR TRUST FUND OF BENIN TOLD US THAT NO ONE HAS ACCESS OVER YOUR FUND AS IT HAVE BEEN SIGNED AND STAMPED THAT NO MONEY SHOULD BE DEDUCTED UNTIL IT GETS TO YOU TO AVOID ANY MISUNDERSTANDING,CRIMINAL ACT AND FOR SECURITY REASONS.

For your convenience check your first $5000.00 installment transfer online at on the space provided at western union www.westernunion.com clicks TRACKING and fill the bellow information website.
